Tour guide (DE/EN)

Why did you come to Copenhagen? And what kept you here?

First I came to CPH as a tourist and fell in love with the city. I like the cool vibes. One year later I moved here because of my international studies at a Danish university.

What are your favourite places in town?

For me "Kongens have" (the King's Garden) and Rosenborg Castle is my favorite one. The garden is worth a visit in every season of the year. I also like being at the waterfront at "Den Sorte Diamant" (the Royal Danish Library). Especially when you are there at a nice summer evening after work.

What are your favourite restaurants and why?

For a short snack I can recommend the green Pølsevogn "DØP" at Rundetårn (the round tower). When one comes to Denmark one has to eat Pølse (the Danish hotdog). I am a vegetarian and these guys offer Pølser also for vegetarians and vegans.Another specialty is Smørrebrød. Try the one at "Torvehallerne" (the market halls) at Nørreport Station and simply enjoy the atmosphere."Rizraz" is a restaurant next to "Vor Frue Kirke" (the cathedral) that offers a great lunch buffet."Senso Sushi" is the place to be for Sushi lovers. It is located in Vestamager, outside the city center.A very sophisticated café is "Krøyers" at Kroyers Plads. It is run by two French women with homemade French pastry. A little bit pricy though.And last but not least: Kanelsnegle (cinnamon buns). For me the best ones are served at Copenhagen's oldest bakery "St. Peders Bageri". On Saturday mornings the is always a queue. But it's worth waiting. They also serve good coffe.

Any tips for people coming to Copenhagen:

First and foremost: do a phantastic bike tour with us and afterwards dive into the city and explore it by yourself.

What do you do besides working for Tropical Bikes?

I study cultural studies and communication studies. And I am a passionate hobby photographer. There is a lot to discover also in greater Copenhagen.
